    Cheapest 'Call of Duty: Black Ops' for Xbox360/PS3 8th Nov 10 at 12:20 PM
    What's this about?

    Updated 9 November 2010


    The newly released Call of Duty: Black Ops is being sold for around £45-50 by some major retailers. Yet itís possible to cut this price down to £28, if you know where to look.

    However, it's likely that if you're prepared to wait a couple of weeks, the cheapest prices will start to plummet further now. If you absolutely MUST HAVE it now,this is a rundown of all the current top deals in-store and online (all prices for both Xbox360 & PS3).

    Do bear in mind this is a violent, 18 certificate game, so is suitable as a Christmas present for adults, not a stocking filler for kids!

    Cheapest In-Store

    • £28 at Sainsbury's when you SPEND £30. Until midnight Sun 14 Nov, Sainsburyís is selling it for £27.97 (to be precise) when you spend another £30 or more in store on the same visit.
    • £37 at Asda. Asda has the game in stores for £36.97.
    • £25 in Tesco, with a £20ish add-ons. Until midnight Sun 14 Nov, Tesco is offering Black Ops for £25, when you buy add-ons with it - either

      - 2100 XBox Live Points Card (£17.50)
      - 3 month Xbox Live Gold Membership (£17.50)
      - or a PS3 £20 PSN Card at the same time.

      However it's likely you could get these extras for less elsewhere. Without the add-ons, Black-ops would cost £39.90.
    • £30 in Morrisons, with another chart game. Until Sun 14 Nov, Morrisons is selling the game for £29.99, when you buy any other Xbox 360 or PS3 chart game at the same time. Otherwise the price is £39.99.
    • £20 at PC World/Dixons/Currys when you SPEND £50. PC World, Dixons and Currys are selling the game for £19.99, when you spend £50 or more in store at the same time. The £50 spend does not include the game purchase. If you're not spending over £50 the game is £39.99.

    Cheapest Online

    • £37 Zavvi Outlet on eBay. Zavvi is selling the Xbox 360 version for £36.89, with free postage. You have to pay via Paypal so only buy if you have an account. There are 3,000 available at this price and if they've not already been sold beforehand the offer will end on Wed 17 Nov.
